Pickleball 101 - Beginners Pickleball

This "sweet" game with a "sour" name is the fastest growing sport among baby boomers in America. Created in the mid 1960's, and now popular in many retirement communities, the game is played on a badminton-sized court with paddles, a ball similar to a whiffle ball and with a net lowered to 34 inches in height. Learn all the basic rules of play in 4 hours of group instruction. Choice of morning or evening classes on a first-come, first-served basis. Each class is held at Seamans Neck Park in Seaford with a limit of 24 players. For information, please call (516) 292-900, ext. 7244.
